Artist Description

Holmes’s small white rectangles (ghost i, ghost ii) are porcelain fragments that have been through extreme heat – now vitrified, strong, fragile, translucent. They are the thing they depicts – earth, clay, materiality, tenacity. She wrote in her catalogue: “Where is the tipping point – the fragile metaphorical point at which things hold or begin to disintegrate? The small paper clay sheets that are part of my body of work - blank, brittle, individual - remind us of knowledge and a history that is no more.”
